Words to live by

This little art quilt is only 8"X11" so the words are written in with a marker but I would like to try a bigger one and try to FMQ in the words. That would be cool.

 

Even with the marker I made a mistake by first putting a line at the top of the T , then putting a line in the middle also. Since the writing was the last thing I do, I either have to live with it or chuck the whole thing. I decided to first out white paint and then shade that as much as I could with Inktense pencil.

I still see it and now so do you since I pointed it out but it's ok. I wouldn't sell this because of it but will look fine in my office at work.

  1. How about putting a few mor bits of color on the slice? Honestly, even after you said it, I did not really see it until I realised it was covered up. Not as bad as you think. At least on computer screen!

  2. Really lovely. I would love to see how it would look with the words done in stitches. :) Anytime I take a pen or marker in hand, knowing that I need to make something look nice, I always botch it. It's nerve wrecking.
